Today is that special day dedicated for families, spouses, friends, & associates to express there love for one another. In lieu of Black History month I decided to post some interesting facts about a few notable African Americas born on Valentine’s day.
What happened to black love? This is one of the many questions left unanswered in the wake of another depressing Tyler Perry film. I know this is gonna fuel anger from the TP Gangstas out there. Why are so many black women single? Because they flock in droves to movies like For Colored Girls. But seriously, can you honestly say you left out that movie feeling better than you did going in? I remember when going to the movies was an escape from the illicit intricacies of life. Where are the Love Jones 2′s, the Best Man 2′s, The Wood 2′s? Sadly an entire generation’s definition of black love will be shaped by million dollar grossing tales of abuse, deceit, despair, and other subjects we’d like to avoid. Have no fear BStuc is here! Please enjoy my attempts to restore that ever elusive dream that sorely avoids the bulk us. Here’s to a beautiful week filled with lovely days.
